Inspiring gravitas with a single breath, Riana is an enchanting feminine name of great esteem. Derived from the Welsh Rigantona—from the Celtic root rīganī—Riana means "great queen," casting little doubt over baby's status in your eyes. But Riana represents far more than regal stature. According to Welsh mythology, Riana's namesake Rhiannon was a beautiful goddess of exceptional intelligence and will, often associated with horses.
